In the Wall Street Journal, Richard Epstein, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law, critiques Stephen Harper's The Lawyer Bubble.
...Is the "Profession in Crisis," as the subtitle of Stephen J. Harper's "The Lawyer Bubble" has it? The answer is no. A bubble may have burst, but not for the high end of the profession or for the thousands of attorneys working in specialized niches.

But he misses how they may rise again.
